These minerals also aid in energy metabolism and along with calcium, are essential for building and maintaining strong, healthy bones and teeth.Magnesium helps to regulate blood pressure and to form neurotransmitters or chemical messengers in the brain, that regulate bodily functions.
This nut is also rich in copper, which along with iron, another trace mineral, is needed to form hemoglobin that is essential for oxygen transport throughout the body.
